What is the best conference in college basketball?

Tobey: When it comes to the talk of best conference it is obvious to say that the ACC is by far the best. It has Duke, North Carolina, Miami, and Notre Dame all in the top 15 and Louisville is currently ranked 19th. Even the bottom half teams are better than a lot of the teams in other conferences like the Big Ten, Big East, and Big 12. I would say as of right now the PAC 12 is in second but there is no chance of competing with the powerhouse that the ACC is.

Nick: The best conference in college basketball is the Atlantic Coastal Conference, better known as the ACC. The ACC is the best because five out of the top 25 teams are out of the ACC. The top two are the Duke Blue Devils and their cross-state rival the North Carolina Tar Heels. The other three teams that are ranked are Notre Dame, Louisville, and Miami. This, plus all the young talent protruding from the conference, is the reason the ACC is the best conference.

Jacob: The college basketball landscape is filled with three or four top conferences. The ACC, Big Ten, SEC, and Pac 12. The ACC has five top 25 teams right now in the rankings, with two top ten teams in blue bloods Duke and North Carolina. The Big Ten is definitely down this year with only one team in the top ten with Michigan State. They have three ranked teams total in the Big Ten with Minnesota and Purdue, in addition to Michigan State. The SEC has always been known as a football conference but this year they are stepping up their game in the basketball department. They have three teams also in the top 25 with Kentucky, Texas A&M, and Alabama, but they have numerous teams that are rising in the rankings. The final top conference is the PAC 12 which is known as one of the best conferences in college basketball. The PAC 12 has UCLA, Arizona, and USC in the top 25 with two teams in the top 10. The best conference as of right now is the ACC because the number of teams they have that are top in the country is unmatched by any other conference. I would not be surprised to see an ACC team win it all.
